Bubba Wallace is a dumb move, the guy sucks..period! He has been at this for awhile and has not improved…RPM is making a mistake. Shame, they don’t seem like they can afford to $$$$ wise! A lot of torn cars, and they will regret it quickly!


What are you guys drinking? Where is the African American fans at the Xifinity level for “Bubba”. Come on…….reality check!


NA$CAR needs to worry about the “Human” demographic. When NA$CAR starts to look at Bubba Wallace and Daniel Suarez as race drivers, period, they will be better off. Worry about attracting fans of any race. JMO.


Spot on!


I think the worry is keeping them.


There is a story going around originating from some sprint car racers that JGR is selling the 19 team to the Suarez family. They have backing from TeleMex and Carlos Slim. Anything?


Maybe that’s why Edwards decided to “retire.”


Something was always/is fishy to me that the Lisping Latino won (with too much hype) the flawed “Chase” format. They made a big deal about him being the first of whatever..blah, blah, blah. HISTORIC!!!! LOL! Joe Gibbs is as phony as a two dollar bill, and I would not want to be in a foxhole with him. He has zero loyalty. It would not surprise he basically kicked Edwards out (making it very attractive) to get the politically correct “minority” in his Cup stable to advance anything that smells of money for his pockets!
